Jimmy Stewart Reads “My Dog Beau”

Please listen to the magic pauses and the deep feeling with which Jimmy Stewart reads his poem to his dead dog on the Johnny Carson Show in 1981.
Do you have to be an actor to express this much feeling with your voice?
Note the way Stewart focuses despite the joking of Johnny and the laughter of the audience.
